HAMBURG, NY – Hilbert College hosted a dual meet on campus with Medaille College Wednesday, October 21. The Hawks split the 2.5k meet with the Mavericks claiming the women’s race but losing the men’s race.

Medaille and Hilbert women finished in a 29-29 tie based on placement finish but because Hilbert had one additional runner competing, the Hawks were victorious. Hilbert’s top runner was Amanda Phillips who completed the race in 21.08.
On the men’s side of the competition, Medaille ran away with the lower score to win the dual meet – 17-41.   Freshman Aaron Lawrence was Hilbert’s fastest runner at 21.04. Medaille claimed 5 of the first 6 finishes which explain their lopsided victory.
